Visual Basic vs VBScript: What are the differences?

Developers describe Visual Basic as "Modern, high-level, multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language for building apps using Visual Studio and the .NET Framework". Visual Basic is derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. On the other hand, VBScript is detailed as "An Active Scripting language that is modeled on Visual Basic". It is an Active Scripting language developed by Microsoft that is modeled on Visual Basic. It allows Microsoft Windows system administrators to generate powerful tools for managing computers with error handling, subroutines, and other advanced programming constructs.

Visual Basic and VBScript can be categorized as "Languages" tools.
